On Friday, at approximately 2:17 a.m., Clay County deputies were dispatched to the area of the 6000 block of 70th Street South, rural Sabin, for a report of a suspicion female walking along the road. Upon arriving in the area, the deputies were able to locate the female and learned that she was the victim of an assault. As deputies were speaking with her, a vehicle had driven by and they received information that the suspect was possibly driving it.
While deputies were following the vehicle, they were working with officers from the Moorhead Police Department to set up sticks in the event the vehicle fled when they attempted to stop the vehicle. A traffic stop was initiated, and the driver of the vehicle refused to stop and fled at a high rate of speed on Main Avenue SE near I-94.
Deputies pursued the vehicle into the Industrial Park, where the driver went off of the road and became stuck in snow. The driver was then taken into custody without incident.
The suspect was identified as Dallas Viker, 38-year-old male from Moorhead. Viker is currently being held in the Clay County Correctional Facility for Felony Fleeing a Police in a Motor Vehicle, Felony Domestic Assault, Felony OFP Violation, Driving After Revocation, and Reckless Driving.
The female was interviewed and transported to a safe location.
The Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Moorhead Police Department.
